ACADEMY MUSEUM EXCLUSIVE

 
Statement necklace designed by Ruth E. Carter and Douriean Fletcher 
This collection recycles the tiles from the museum’s building designed in 1939 and turns them into modern abstract pieces with a vintage flare.
 
Ruth E. Carter is the 2019 Academy Award®-winner in Costume Design for Marvel’s Black Panther, making history as the first African American to win in the category. Carter’s Afro Future looks empower the female form and turn a superhero into an African king. Inspired by African tribal wear, Carter fuses traditional and contemporary while incorporating technology to deliver fashion and function. Carter’s depth of artistry,  creative instincts, passion for culture and history, capacity for research, eye for detail, and ability to deliver the director’s vision while infusing her own signature style, make her one of the most sought after and renowned costume designers in the world.
 
Douriean Fletcher is an ever-evolving artist that creates sacred adornments with high intentions. She uses the original purpose of jewelry: a non-verbal communication tool to tell others who we are and how we feel. Her pieces are the unique products of her creative process in which she explores cultural identity, femininity, spirituality, and divine power. Through adornment, she believes women can define beauty on their own terms and express themselves authentically. She is committed to supporting women by revealing and sharing who they are through the storytelling in her one-of-a kind pieces.

While working on Ruth E. Carter’s crew for Black Panther (2018), she made history by becoming the first jeweler in the Motion Picture Costumer Union, Local 705. In addition to Black Panther, her work has appeared on network television and in feature films.
